It is a bit too early on in the year for most homeowners to really be thinking about the winter season too seriously. We don’t want to rain on your parade, as this autumn has proven to be quite mild, but the fact is that our nighttime temperatures are certainly starting to dip below comfortable levels. It is only a matter of time before our days begin to follow suit. With that in mind, we’d like to offer you one simple tip for making it through the winter season in great comfort.

Really? My Ceiling Fan?
Yes, really. Your ceiling fan is a powerful ally during the summer season, as you well know. It takes a lot less energy to run a ceiling fan than it does an air conditioner, after all, so you can supplement your AC with your ceiling fan in order to cut down on energy use. What many homeowners fail to realize, though, is that their ceiling fans are just as helpful during the winter season.
This is especially true if you use a forced air heating system, such as a furnace or a heat pump, to heat your home. Heat rises, remember, which means that heated air can wind up settling above your living space, where it is really doing little good for the individuals within your home. By using your ceiling fan, you can circulate that heat throughout your home in a more effective manner, which can help to boost comfort levels.
During the winter, you need simply flip a switch found on most ceiling fan’s bodies themselves. This reverses the direction in which the blades rotate. By switching your ceiling fan over to its winter settings, you can supplement your heater by helping it to better distribute heated air throughout the entire house.
